A Chinese tourist was hit by a pick-up after running onto the road near a hotel behind the Factory Outlet on ByPass Road, Phuket. The driver of the pick-up sped away even though it would have been completely obvious that they had hit the tourist, albeit an accident caused by the running tourist. A report has been filed with police about the incident. The tourist was running out of the hotel to get onto a bus for a day trip. He survived the hit and run and was taken to hospital.
